Man, they just don't make hair like that anymore. Reminds me of my Little League coach, and the filling station attendant, and the mailman, Gabby, and...

(Thank God, though, they no longer make suits like Mr. Twitty's.)

Enjoy,

"I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing" is the first song in a commercial I can recall. Not sure if it was even a song outside of the commercial.

Amazing how at least three of us thought of that Coke commercial, but, amazingly enough, it started out as a commercial and THEN became a hit song!

I don't think were going back far in time far enough.The coke song definately was in the early to later 70s but I still think what I'm going for was an established band and then used a few years on.I'm convinced it was from an established band .Now after all your attemps this is going to bug the crap out me.Was any music connected the anti -pollution campaign in the 70s especially the one where you see the Indian w/ a tear flowing.Probably not, I'm still leaning towards a car brand,maybe fast food but just still guessing w/ no real answer here yet .Great respones we must did deeper into what's left of out of our collective memory banks.Another idea is Motown.

Here's a great one: the I wasn't born to follow by the Byrds? Used by the Beer guys about "it's lucky when you live out west, with mountain tops and all the rest..." to the tune...

That was one of the very first really cool ones, 1971.

Turns out your crying Indian was actually a weeping Italian from the bayous.
